Lucozade Sport is the official sports drink of Liverpool FC. The Lucozade Sport science team work closely with the backroom staff at Melwood to prepare the players for training and match day.
Ryland Morgans, head of fitness and conditioning at LFC says the importance of sports nutrition and hydration cannot be underestimated:
"As part the fitness and conditioning team at Liverpool Football Club, one of our responsibilities is to ensure the players are physically prepared for training and, more importantly, ready to produce peak performance on match day. Each player will have different nutritional requirements, so it is vital that we provide a range of products to enable players to perform at their best. The Lucozade Sport team provide us with their drinks, nutritional products, and hardware to ensure this can be done with maximum efficiency."
"We use it as opposed to simply using water because it contains all the carbohydrates and electrolytes required to fuel the players through intensive training sessions, and importantly, for the full 90 plus minutes on match day".
